America's Best Coffee Cities 2013
No. 20 Philadelphia
The City of Brotherly Love slipped 12 spots in this year’s coffee rankings, but locals are still loyal to the espresso at La Colombe, which has a café off Rittenhouse Square. Meanwhile, newcomer Ultimo Coffee, with a location in South Philly, was recently declared the nation’s best coffee shop by one foodie site, in part because of its loyalty to the highly esteemed Counter Culture beans. But locals love more than a good coffee high: Ultimo’s South Philly location shares space with Brew, a by-the-bottle craft beer shop.
